WTB: VL diff

Anyone got a VL diff laying around near Ballarat, Vic?

Chasing one to fit into the HG van.

Doesn't matter what ratio etc, really just need the housing and I can build one from there.

Cheers

WB driveline vibration

thought I'd share a win...picked up a WB caprice about 6 months ago and one of the things that needed sorting was some annoying driveline vibration at about 1400rpm - which in top gear was about 55kmhr and a very typ speed to be driving around the suburbs.

HT Gearbox

Hi folks,
I have a HT 253 without a gearbox.
To cut a long story short,I took the casing to a guy in Tempe and apparently he died. By the time I found this out the workshop had been cleared out and the building re-purposed. (This is what I get for being super patient and never hassling people who work on my things. )
Been looking at online ads for boxes. The are pretty pricey.
Anyone got one in reasonable condition I could buy? Sydney area. Cant remember what was in it and the case is gone. Poss Aussie 4 speed.

Trans seems to sit too high, HQ coupe

Hi guys, I've bolted a 308 and t350 through salsbury from a HJ 4 door into my HQ coupe, using a new trans crossmember (ordered for coupe, 308, th350) from Rod Shop. I'm not sure if I've done something wrong, but the trans output is sitting very high, which leads to tailshaft contacting the tunnel.....
is there an obvious solution or a common fault I'm possibly making??

Saginaw or M21 into HK ute

Hi. I have done a good search of the site and found lots of relevant information but would like to confirm one more time before I make my decision. I have a HK ute with a 161 and Toyota 5 speed box. I need to replace the box. The Saginaw is fine; however, some alteration to the tunnel on the passenger side needs to be made to provide clearance for some of the linkages. Although a little rough, this clearance can be beaten in with a hammer?? The M21 is fine; however, a part of a cross member needs to be removed to make clearance for the shifter?? Thanks very much for your help. Nick.

HR Holden

Hello,
I have a 66hr ute and it had a power guide trans with column shift. I am changing the trans to a trimatic no problem. I am also moving the shift selector from the steering column to a floor mounted shift select. The floor mount I am using is from a late holden statesman. I have made an raised adapter and a special center console to hid all the workings.
My question is has anyone attempted this before and if so please share your frustration's with me.
David

aussie 4 speed

hi guys
ive just swapped my gearbox over from a 3on the tree to a 4 on the floor.
it drives fine, but when changing down from 3rd to 2nd it grinds and doesn't want to go in. It will shift into 2nd once the speed slows right down.
But driving up thru the gears is sweet...no grinding at all.
Any suggestions? Linkage adjustment??? Rooted internals???
cheers

Bigger clutch in red 6 HG

I have a 186, and bought an aussie 4 speed to fit to it. The 4 speed came with a flywheel, clutch disc, and pressure plate

I installed my old flywheel that has always been on my 186, and then found that the pressure plate was larger than my original. The clutch disc was also of larger diameter.

I decided that the significantly larger clutch surface area might be a good thing, so I then installed the flywheel that came with the 4 speed, along with the matching clutch gear.

Engine mounts on a HG red 6

Re the rubber engine mounts in a Hg red 6.
Do the safety retaining tabs go toward the block, or do they face out towards the guards/?

Flywheel questions

G'day guys,
I am chasing some flywheel information.
Firstly is the 253 flywheel heavier than the six cylinder flywheel and will it interchange?
Do the 253 and 308 share the same flywheel?
Are the clutch face areas the same diameter or is the V8 flywheel/s larger?
Sorry for the silly questions fellas, but I am working on a clutch/engine conversion.

Cheers, Mick.
